Seemed very quiet around the Golf Course this morning, still small flocks of Finches moving east and singles of Whinchat on the practise area, and Chiffchaff and Blackcap from 1st wood. Onto West Beach were I decided as it was that quiet just to do the small loop and head for home. A nice surprise firstly was Short-eared Owl flushed from the dunes on 3, 1 Peregrine north over the golf course and 2 SNOW BUNTING, seen 50yds west of the boardwalk, amongst the shingle. They eventually took flight east and lost to view, may still be in the area around the dunes. Good count of 45 Cormorant on the river mouth breakwater  and several Red-breasted Mergansers moving west, 2 Razorbill off Climping Beach.
